My 16th birthday is in a few weeks. I'm not too excited, its a birthday nothing too special, but my mom wants to make a huge deal out of it and throw some huge party for me. Usually I'd have no problem with this but I'd prefer she spend the money on something I actually want, like that Marshall half-stack I've been hoping for.

It seems like shes doing this more for her enjoyment than mine since I've told her lots of times I really don't want a party. She's said "your my only child so I only have one shot at this" which makes me think she doesn't even care about what I want.

How do I get her to buy me a half stack instead of throwing a party that will consist of people from my year at school that I hate?

If I do actually have the party I plan on showing in no shirt, Robert Plant pants with no boxers on followed and performing a ripping solo after which I shall say "Thanks for costing me my amp you ****tards, I hate most of you." and I'll depart in all my glory.

I come to the pit for your knowledge and wisdom.

tl;dr: My 16th, mom wants party, I want amp, what do I do?

steal the money and the amps and then buy some amps with the money, that way you'll get what you want times two.

let her throw you a part...get as many people to come..they should all give you 20 dollars mandatory...buy the amp with the money...invite atleast 100 people...


but seriously...tell your mom you want the amp..and its her choice to satisfy herself and make you miserable..or make you happy therefor making herself happy..

let her throw the party and have a little fun... it's not so bad. the marshall will come soon enough

Just tell her, maybe you can have a little party. You, her and some friends/family.

And I turn 18 in 3 or so months, and I'm dreading it.

If you are gonna kill your mom do it this year so you don't get tried as an adult (this is a joke - do not kill your mom).

You probably suck at guitar so your mom would rather throw a party then buy you a Marshall.

Enjoy it. It's all downhill from 16.

He's not. I hate pretty much everyone from my school. It's his birthday. He should get what he wants. I'm the exact opposite of him. On my birthday I try to please everyone else, it's horrible. I don't recomend it.
#23

Gear:
PRS SE Singlecut, blue with stoptail (my baby)

Epiphone Les Paul standard
Cheapo Yamaha nylon string
even more cheapo Fender steel string acoustic
#24
If it is an MG halfstack then get it ...the over drive is fuking CRUSHING. but if its anything like a jcm series or something like that i would rather have the party
#26
Enjoy your party, you miserable friendless bastard.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Ouch, you'd rather make her buy you an amp instead of spend quality time with her? You're a jerk and you don't deserve a new amp or her love.

Actually, apart from the CRUSHING OVERDIVE!!! I quite like my MG, it has a nice clean tone, and the CRUSHING OVERDRIVE!!! is useful in some circumstances.

threadstarter, you're a prick. you deserve neither.

just what i thought when he mentioned he wanted it. 15 year olds are raving about the MGs >.<

If I don't have the party I'll be able to get a Plexi head and a 1960A cab.

Maybe now you see why I don't want the party. I wouldn't even mind so much if it was just a get together but she's thinking of some kind of massive orgy of people I hate and want nothing to do with outside of school.

Ask yourself, Plexi or ****s from school, which would you want?

Does she have their numbers? Because it would be hard for her to invite people if she doesn't have their numbers.

She'd probably get her friends daughter to hand out invitations at my school.

Also I don't see why people think I'm selfish, we spend a decent amount of time together already and it my birthday I should get to choose what I do. I was planning on jamming with a few friends along with my new amp, but that idea just got destroyed.

If she goes with the birthday run away for a couple of days and crash at a friends house. And then when you go back home look at her as if though you were disappointed. She'll feel guilty and buy you the amp.

somebody call the waaaaahhhhhmbulance.

he is being a selfish prick, or at least he is to me. he's not paying for any of it, his mum probably just wants to do something special because it's one of those ages that are seen as a milestone, i'm sure he could always oh i don't know, get a job and earn his own money, making this amp he wants even more special.

but god forbid these lazy children from contributing to society it's not wonder no-one on here has any friends.

Did it ever occur to you that if you hate every single last person at your school then maybe the issue is not with them but with you?

Because working 2 jobs during the Summer isn't enough right?

And obviously wanting her to spend the money on something I'll actually appreciate is horrible of me.

He's probably just like me and can't stand the dramatic bullshit that takes place at school, it's just easier to have a few close friends than to be something you hate just to be accepted by people you really don't like anyway.

you don't see how people think you're being selfish? you've come on an internet forum to winge about how you're not getting things your own way.
